I am a huge fan of Karen Tyler’s Montessori albums, that cover in great detail all sections of Montessori learning materials for ages 2 1/2 to 6. Terrific step-by-step instructions take a novice parent and even an advanced teacher to a new level. FAQ’s help resolve both everyday behavioral problems with kids (e.g. why kids are lying?) and things specific to teaching/learning. Language, Math, Practical exercises, Geology, Zoology, Botany, History, Physical Science… all major subjects are covered on the level appropriate for 2 1/2 to 6 year olds, have tons of illustrations, downloaded activities, directions for home diy materials, print outs. Considering its low price – it is an incredibly worthy and put to a good use in our home – it really saves me TONS of time creating these materials from scratch, or buying them ready-made, or – trying to figure out how to make it all work… Did I mention that I really love Karen’s course and materials?
Now Karen was very kind to share her Geography album with everyone for free. Feel free to view/download it here: Karen Tyler’s Montessori Geography Album. If you liked it, please share your comments here, and if you don’t – it would be very interesting to hear your point of view!
